    Abstract

    A computer-interfaced balance board, with facilities for data capture and analysis, and with provision for various forms of biofeedback, was built primarily as a balance retraining aid for stroke and head injury victims and for amputees. The opportunity was taken to do a modelling study of the human balance control system as it presents itself during quiet standing; to apply principles of optimum stability; and to try to identify patterns among those recorded which might be indicative of predominant visual/somatosensory control on the one hand and predominant vestibular control on the other.
